Restaurant-like Garnishes at Home

I recently discovered Farming Turtles – a company that grows micro greens and baby greens and also sells the seeds so you can grow your own crops of tiny little shoots to garnish and season your dishes. The packets of seeds are $1.50 each and come with growing instructions. You can also purchase organic soil to be shipped with your seeds. If you aren’t feeling the green thumb, you can order the live plants too! All those need are a little sunlight and a bit of watering and come ready to cut.

Some of my favorites are below.

They also have edible centerpieces, which are sure to add some flair to your table and as a bonus, are functional too!
